      The SWAC, an HBCU league, expanded to 12 members last year, adding Bethune-Cookman and Florida A&M. Sanders told ESPN that discussions on the possibility of forming an HBCU super conference have started on some level.

      The SEC is adding Texas and Oklahoma from the Big 12. USC and UCLA are set to defect from the Pac-12 to the Big Ten.

      New Grambling State coach Hue Jackson applauds the idea of an HBCU super conference. The SWAC and MEAC are home to all but three of the Division I HBCU programs.

      “super” in the mind of Sanders?   Or just the size?  What is super about it?

          Super=Deion’s ego.  So he steals the HBCUs from the MEAC and SEAC and combines them into an HBCU-only league.  I don’t see the point of that, unless racism: we’re going to form a black league and race-shame the best black players into playing only with their own.   Not going to work, and a very bad idea if you’re for diversity everywhere.   Why shouldn’t there be diversity intra-league?
